OP, I don't really care if your story is "true" or "not true". I've had enough spiritual encounters to know that these experiences can come in many forms.
I am forever thankful, for your story reaching all the way to my heart and I sobbed like a baby. You are an angel and you have a beautiful message.
I do not belong to any religion, but deep within I KNOW that we are one with the Father, Creator, Creation, God (or whatever you wish to call it)
Your message is a divine one of love, comfort and hope, that no matter what happens - The Almighty holds each and every one of us, in the very palms of his hands.
And that there is work to do, on the other side :)
